Lenovo Legion 5 15 (82JW0012US) Review And Specification

Lenovo Legion 5 15 (82JW0012US) Review And Specification

 The Lenovo Legion 5 15 Gaming Laptop is the newest sensation in the world of midrange AM gaming laptops, with a mobile Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and a 45W Ryzen 7 5800H CPU. Lenovo has given the Legion 5 15 a facelift over previous versions, improved the keyboard, and created an eye-catching screen to commemorate the new entry into the gaming sector.

It performs far better than most gaming laptops in its class, like the Asus TUF Gaming 17 and the Razer Blade 15, even while it lacks the gaming DNA of real desktop replacements running desktop-class hardware, such the Gigabyte Aorus 17x.

There are two primary things to think about when a laptop's gaming performance. There is performance, and the Legion 5 82JW0012US outperforms its rivals in this regard. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it, and while it doesn't quite match the Zephyrus G15's Ryzen 9 5900HS in performance, it doesn't fall far short. It boasts a powerful mobile RTX 3050 Ti.

The main differences between the Lenovo Legion 5 and previous Legion models include reduced bezels around the screen and a Y-shaped LED logo on the lid. The Lenovo Legion 5 shares many visual cues with previous Legion models. However, there are lots of Lenovo and Legion emblems everywhere you look, including on the keyboard deck, hinge, and bottom screen bezel. I/O labels are embellishing the middle portion of the rear of the hinge, which reaches far past the screen. Large vents may be found on the laptop's sides, back, and bottom as well.

The Legion line's customary grayish-black color scheme, which is excellent at concealing fingerprints, is kept on the new Legion 5. The Legion 5 15's glittering matte texture aids in reducing the appearance of fingerprints and smudges.

This is a large laptop, even with thinner bezels. It is substantially thicker than even the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 laptops we've reviewed, measuring 14.02 x 10.41 x 1.07 inches. The MSI GL66 is 0.94 x 14.13 x 10.2 inches, while the Acer Predator Helios 300 measures 14.31 x 10.04 x 0.9 inches. A big laptop, the Lenovo Legion 5 15 weighs 5.28 pounds. But it's not the only one here.

The full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS monitor with a refresh rate of 165Hz remains with the Lenovo Legion 5. The screen produces impressively deep blacks and slightly vibrant colors with superb viewing angles when playing a Planet Earth II trailer. The display's high brightness (300 nits), which is significantly higher than the 277 nits average for midrange laptops, is responsible for the screen's excellent viewing angles and lack of glare.

Competitors' color distribution is more uniform, and the Legion 5 scored an 81% DCI-P3 rating. The Razer Blade 15 averages 83.9%, which is almost on pace with the Legion's rating, while the Alienware M15 Ryzen Edition R5 is somewhat more colorful with an 87.3% DCI-P3 rating.

Touchpad and keyboard

Lenovo Legion 5 15 (82JW0012US) Keyboard

Awesome. The Lenovo Legion 5 15's "TrueStrike Gaming Keyboard," which has a full ten keys, four zones of RGB lighting, and 100% anti-ghosting, can only be characterized in that way. Lenovo claims to have good key travel, and given the high ratings of the prior Legion 5 gaming line, we can certainly empathize.

In terms of real-world gaming, using the TrueStrike keyboard is comparable to using a ThinkPad keyboard from Lenovo. In other words, the keyboard is incredibly sensitive and comfy. The Lenovo 5's keycaps are curved at the bottom and concave in the center, similar to ThinkPads, making touch typing a breeze.

A big 4.7 x 3 inch precision touchpad is located underneath the keyboard. Due to its smooth surface, scrolling and other two- and three-finger multi-touch input actions like switching are a breeze. Although it is somewhat off-center, you can play WASD shooters while your palm is on the touchpad without it effecting mouse input because of how well it rejects palms.

With the Lenovo Vantage and a Fn row keyboard shortcut, you may turn on and off touchpad input. 

A Battery's Life

The Lenovo 82JW0012US has a long battery life for a gaming laptop, which may be owing to its huge size which allows for a larger battery or simply more efficiency in the general design. That's as good as it gets, lasting 6 hours and 14 minutes over nonstop video streams and web browsing. That is a bit longer than the Alienware M15's 3:28 but less than the Razer Blade Pro 17's 5:53.
